Fresh As A Daisy

There is nothing sweeter than a baby fresh from the tub.

Unless, perhaps, it is a baby wrapped in a brand new flower petal towel that came in the mail by surprise. I ordered it from Pottery Barn Kids last fall and it finally shipped. I had forgotten all about it. So surprises are pretty sweet too. Surprises, and babies fresh from the tub.

And baby feet. Those too. Clean, wrinkly, baby toes. Fresh from the tub, and smelling like lavender. I could eat them.

Tiny clean toes that go running swiftly through the house looking for a Daddy. Flower petal towel flowing behind like a little super hero cape, and a bare tushy peeking out from underneath. There's nothing sweeter.

Nothing. Sweeter.

That is ADORABLE. Oh my gosh...have a list of friends I need to send baby gifts to...this would be oh-so-perfect!

Way too cute! I saw the pictures, immediately told my husband, and he responded "for who?" Man, I miss having a baby girl!

She is precious...the towel adds even more preciousness (is that a word?).
